So: advice. I want to buy a new, robust, perfectly standard sort of bike for use in getting from A to B over mostly paved roads on a regular basis. I would like, for obvious reasons, to do it in Oxford within walking distance. Before I go and do something on impulse - is there anywhere in particular anyone would recommend buying from, or conversely recommend avoiding like the plague? (Or any other advice, really, but this is the one part I am flying a bit blind on...)
Now, time for the other thing I've been putting off all year - a haircut. Perhaps this is the week for finally getting stuff done.
